In collaboration with Travel Texas. Thank you for supporting the brands that support A Taste of Koko!
It’s National Barbecue Month so I had to update my list of the best bbq in Austin! While travel is limited right now, let’s experience the best that Texas barbecue has to offer by supporting some of the local barbecue spots in and around the part of the state I call home, Austin. You can also order Texas barbecue and get it shipped straight to your door!
Austin is known for our barbecue but in a city that’s filled with so many spots, what’s the best? Where you go for the best brisket, ribs, sausage, and most importantly, sides. I don’t consider myself a barbecue expert by any means so I reached to my friend and local Austin barbecue expert, Taylor Welden, to also share his picks on the best bbq in Austin!
Most restaurants in Austin haven’t reopened their dining rooms but all of these barbecue spots are open for curbside takeout including Franklin Barbecue – that means no standing in line!
My name is Taylor (@TaylorWelden). I’m the Senior Editor over at Carryology.com, a Product Designer for various global outdoor/adventure brands, VP of Austin Facial Hair Club, VP of Beard Team USA, winner of the 2017 QUESOFF (1st place spicy category), and a frequent traveler aiming for all 7 continents by 2021 (window seats, always). I reluctantly call myself “a photographer”. And I love to eat.
